Otherwise known as ‘Hymn for Ascension Day,’ ‘Hail the Day that sees Him Rise’ was written by Charles Wesley in 1739, though the ‘Alleluias’ were added in 1852 by the Revd. G. C. White. I have kept the traditional style of the hymn but written a new melody for it, with a new line being added with every verse. Click on the score below to follow the music of verse 1. I’ve added a Trumpet too!
